About the Artist–
Aia Leu Allin – Fine Art Studio
Landscape Paintings and Fine Art Prints from Aia, a gifted artist based in Kenmare, Ireland. Growing up in an artistic environment, her grandmother the Swiss artist Eva Aeppli, Aia’s art forms a vibrant tapestry woven from her multicultural and bohemian upbringing. Her childhood in India, Switzerland and the enchanting Irish landscape have left an indelible mark on her work. Her studio is in the Caha Mountains just outside Kenmare.
She has held solo exhibitions in Ireland and has participated in group shows internationally. Her paintings are available at the Kenmare Courtyard Gallery co-op and online on her website.
